Louise Doherty Wyant '63 Lecture & Reception

Featured Speaker: LaToya Ruby Frazier
Art as Transformation Using Photography for Social Change

This event has been postponed. Please stay tuned for further details.

Critically acclaimed artist LaToya Ruby Frazier will discuss how she has used photography to fight injustice—poverty, healthcare and gender inequality, environmental contamination, racism, and more—and create a more representative self-portrait. Drawing from her book The Notion of Family as well as from works of art by Frederick Douglass, August Sander, Julia Margaret Cameron, and Langston Hughes, she relates her conscious approach to photography, opens up more authentic ways to talk about family, inheritance, and place, and celebrates the inspirational, transformative power of images.
